Watch Far from the Madding Crowd - Alternative Versions.
Having read this book more than once (it is my favorite Thomas Hardy book,
and one of my favorite books of all time), and having seen both filmed
versions, I have to say that the original version (with Alan Bates, Julie
Christie and Peter Finch) cannot hold a candle to the second (with Nathaniel
Parker, Paloma Baeza and Nigel Terry).
The original version was a great disappointment to me -- Julie Christie was,
as another reviewer pointed out, too old for the part of Bathsheba, did not
fit Hardy's description of her at all, and has never impressed me as much of
an actress -- a major casting faux pas, in my opinion. Peter Finch, as
Boldwood, did not elicit the strong feeling of empathy from me, as Nigel
Terry did in his portrayal of the character. The greatest surprise to me,
in regard to the first version, was that I also felt the same about Alan
Bates' performance as Gabriel Oak -- he did not convey the emotions and the
quality of Oak's character, as described by Hardy in the book, and I found
his portrayal to be bland, boring, and, at times, overacted. Part of the
blame would have to be shared by the director of that version -- the actors
appeared to be acting, and neither they, nor the director, seemed to have a
firm grasp or understanding of the explicit emotions and personalities of
the characters, which Hardy had gone to great effort and detail to describe
in the book.
After having seen Nathaniel Parker's interpretation of Gabriel Oak, I cannot
imagine anyone else playing the part -- it was the first time I had seen Mr.
Parker in any performance, and he ripped my heart out with his portrayal of
this noble, dignified, aggrieved and tormented soul. He and Ms. Baeza, Mr.
Terry, and Mr. Firth (Sergeant Troy), seemed to have a thorough
comprehension of, and sensitivity toward, the characters as they were
intended by Thomas Hardy -- they appeared to have walked straight out of the
pages of the book! In addition, the sensitive and intuitive direction by
Nicholas Renton drew powerful performances from all, including a superior
supporting cast. The accurate period costumes, and beautiful sets and
cinematography, serve to round out a production of true quality.
I highly recommend to anyone interested in this story, that he or she
consider reading the book first. Although this screenplay remains true to
the book, some of the detail which enhances understanding and feeling for
the characters, the time period, and the plot, was edited due to time
constraints, as is common with filmed productions of great pieces of
